Is how does Tommy Tuberville keep getting job after job when Fulmer apparently never even gets interviews?
It just makes no sense to me.
I am not completely sure if Phil is interested in coaching. However if he is then I can't understand that either.
I've wondered that myself. Fulmer isn't much older so that's not an issue for him. Only thing I can think of is that Fulmer is very picky while Tubbs just wants a job wherever he can get it.
Because Fulmer has said it would have to be a special place for him to ever coach again, so unlike Tubs he would have never have considered Texas Tech or Cincy. AD's might be contacting Fulmers agent and he tells them he isnt interested and we never hear about it. The schools that would interest Fulmer have probably wanted a younger coach
Phil has discussed a few jobs but none of them have been the right fit. He'd like to coach again, but is being really picky about the job. He has a nice place on a bunch of land out in Maryville and he wants to retire there, so he isn't interested in just taking any job. He would take the right job (not sure what his criteria are), go coach for a handful of years and then come back to Maryville for good if that right job came along...it just hasn't yet.

To your point about 'the right job' I think he projects that in his interviews and I also think many folks think like some of us that he just isn't the same Phil without Cut and Chief. Good man in a bad spot with a lot of money. He'll be fine...not that money makes the difference.
Ive heard it mentioned that he may be black balled..
Yeah don't remember where I seen or heard that but it was recently. You could make the argument he is being selective or just has no interest but you could also argue the other side
